Review: Jord Watch


Hello, hello! I claimed that I was back, and then took another week break from blogging. Silly me.
I wanted to make sure that I mentioned a lovely brand whom with I have been working called Jord. Jord contacted me about trying out one of their stunning, wooden watches! I have been in need of a new watch and when I looked through their website I was flabbergasted at how lovely they were. Each one is made from natural wood, and so the rustic quality of the watch is ever so charming. Aaaand it just so happened to match my favorite vintage suit. So there's that.
Take a peek at the photos below and you'll see what I mean.




I also wanted to try out some very simple finger waves this weekend. They certainly aren't authentic finger waves, but enough to give a nod to the era. I will have to practice with some more sophisticated materials than bobby pins and see what I can come up with in the future. It had me aching to lop my hair up to my ears a'la young Bette Davis though. Someday, someday.







Look at how stunning this watch is! I received the Ely watch in Cherry and absolutely adore it. The great thing is that this particular style is so classic that it seems as though it is timeless! It is extremely well made and the clasp is different and more innovative than any other watch I have worn in the past, making it easy to put on.  That is a bonus because sometimes it can be a struggle to put on a watch or bracelet by yourself with clasps like puzzles!
They have a range of trendy styles as well, so be sure to take a peek at their selection. I just love the two toned styles they have in their collection!
The only complaint I have is one that I struggle finding watches to fit my small wrists. This one is a bit loose, but that won't deter me one bit from wearing it.






  


What do you think of Jord watches? Would you wear one?

Have a lovely day all!
God Bless,
KJA

Hiatus


Well, hello! It has been a while, yes? I haven't blogged in about three weeks! I have been super busy working 2 jobs and also getting much more involved in our church now that we have finally found one we feel like we connect to. For those reasons and the weather I haven't gotten a chance to take any photos at all! Today we were lucky we even got some in as it was in the midst of freezing rain while taking these photos.
I have to admit it has been kind of nice to not worry about the ol' bloggy. I've been doing a lot of sketching in my free time, and of course with Thanksgiving last week I went to visit family. Hopefully I won't take a break that long again, I have missed it!













God Bless! I hope you have a great week :)

Outfit: Tidal Wave










This is my favorite black cardigan! It has adorable details like the little bows at the waist and a fun little collar. I wore it pretty simply to head to the diner with Sean's family the other night. I wanted my tidal wave (as my students call it) of hair to be the focal point.
I haven't had any time to take photos in the past two weeks so I am hoping I get to take some this weekend. Until then, have a great day all!

God Bless, 
KJA

Spotlight: Aviva Dress

Hello there! 
Today I am spotlighting a fabulous dress website- Aviva Dress! Aviva Dress is a UK based company specializing in gorgeous special occasion dresses. They have everything one would need for an event including prom, homecoming, and wedding attire
Although I have already been through all of the major events in my life, I still enjoyed looking through the selection of diverse dresses Aviva Dress has to offer. There are long and short prom dresses, evening and cocktail dresses, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses, mother of the bride/groom dresses, and they all come in a wide selection of shapes and sizes. 
Here are a few of my favorite picks from their website!









 Wedding Gowns:


(Keep in mind the dresses I chose are geared to my own personal style, they offer many strapless, satin, ball gowns, etc. as well!) 

Not only does Aviva Dress carry hundreds of dress styles, but they also offer a selection of jewelry and accessories (like petticoats, veils, gloves, etc.) for your special occasions as well. I am a pearls girl, so I fell in love with these two sets in particular. The one on the left is something I would have loved to wear with my own wedding dress!


The best thing about this company are the prices. I remember my gracious mother paying hundreds of dollars for my prom and wedding dresses, but at Aviva Dress I found evening dresses for as low as $63, and wedding dresses for as low as 80 dollars. For those of us who have a small budget to work with, I know how important it is to find a beautiful dress without paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars to do so! And if we're going with this wedding theme, don't neglect the bridesmaid dress selection with a huge range of color options sure to fit your event in a price that won't make your friends loathe you for choosing it.

Fast shipping time takes the stress off those who have a short amount of time to work with. Wedding dresses process within 12-15 days, and ship in 3-5 days, and the number is even less for other special occasion dresses.

Lastly, and probably most importantly, Aviva Dress offers the option to custom order your dress to fit your own measurements. Nearly every individual I know has had to have their fancy dresses altered to fit them, sometimes at a very costly price. Aviva Dress offers this option for just $10, asking for a bust, waist, hip, and length measurement. This way you can be sure that you beautiful dress will fit, even though you are ordering online.

The reviews on the website speak to the incredible quality and fit that Aviva Dress boasts. Thank you for reading a bit about this company, and if you have any occasions coming up make sure to take a look at their website!
